Description

nDreams is a world-leading VR game developer and publisher, combining innovation with excellence. We are the team behind the #1 selling, Best-of-E3 award-winning Phantom: Covert Ops and the recently launched Far Cry: Dive Into Insanity, and we’ve got several exciting projects planned for 2021 and beyond including Fracked, our recently announced PlayStation VR exclusive.

These projects – and others we can’t yet talk about! – continue to push forward the boundaries of VR and we’re looking for talented people to help us turn them into a reality. Once you’ve seen what we’re up to, we’re convinced you’ll want to be involved…

  • Helping to inspire and mentor key members of staff in the creative process of conception and development, help develop your team into a stronger, better, more experienced unit

Requirements
